The first trailer for Star Trek Beyond, the upcoming third film in the latest Star Trek reboot series, let a lot of fans down. Its explosions, motorcycle jumps, and other cheesy action shots led fans to wonder whether the series was taking a Michael Bay/Transformers turn into generic action film territory.
Thankfully, the second trailer released today has eased a lot of fans’ worry, as it shows that the movie is taking Star Trek back to its roots:
The film’s synopsis reveals little about the plot, but offers a good glimpse into the story’s direction:
The Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space, where they encounter a mysterious new enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.
Star Trek Beyond is set to hit theaters on July 22nd, 2016!
